Mixed Berry Drop Biscuit Cobbler

I love a good cobbler during the summer months and this Mixed Berry Drop Biscuit Cobbler is so sweet and delicious and a cinch to make.  Berries are super ripe right now and taste so naturally  sweet.  They’re especially nice when baked with mini drop biscuits on top and become the most delightful dessert.

Drop biscuits are much simpler to make than rolled biscuits because you mix the dough in a stand mixer or bowl, and pinch it off over top of the fruit to create that beautiful crust.  I decided to go with mini biscuits because of the crunch factor — less doughy.  The juicy berries bake into  a jam-like texture, while still holding a bit of their shape and become the right canvas for the biscuits to rise and achieve that special crust.

I like to prepare this dessert for larger gatherings during the summertime because it does feed a crowd and it’s a great dessert to take to friend’s parties as well.  A scoop of ice cream or whipped cream would be lovely on top.
